Justin Blackmon, not Josh Gordon, is now the dumbest player in the NFL

Both those guys had the potential to be elite receivers. It is a shame they have substance abuse issues.

 

And that's the thing I don't get. Pot just isn't worth it.  It's more of a mind thing than an actual physical addition. This is not heroin that we're talking about.

 

As for alcohol, it's so damn easy to pick up a phone and call a cab. Hell, with that kinda money, you can hire your own full time driver.

 

How can you literally throw millions down the drain for a drink and a smoke?  How?

Of course weed is addictive.

 

Anything that alters you is addictive.

Maybe not to you.

 

You can't lump everyone together and say what is addictive and what is not.

 

There are thousand different ways individuals can react to weed.

Marijuana is addictive, both mentally and physically. The rates of addiction with marijuana are just significantly less than other drugs (Cigs, Heroine, Meth...) its is much more comparable to the addiction rates of caffeine.

 

However drug addictions are 50% of these guy's problem the other 50% is just being dumb about how they handle their drug use.

 

Apparently you can be dumb and play in the NFL, you can be dependent on drugs and play in the NFL, but you can't be dumb and addicted to drugs.

Punch your wife in the face and render her unconscious in public: two game suspension. Smoke weed habitually: year suspension.

 

That's another thread, but it's a valid point. 

 

I do believe that It was his first time running afoul of the law, and he is cooperating fully with officials.  

 

Still, it would seem like he would have at least gotten four games.  If I were the commish, that would probably be a minimum six game suspension, if not eight.

Or when Dante Stallworth got drunk and ran someone over.  I don't think he faced any NFL suspension and just 30 days in jail right?

 

I don't think it should be penalized like this BUT if you know this is going to happen, don't you think you'd make an effort to not do it while you're making money.   Especially doing it in public, I mean, come on man.
